during this period. we did jerry little to stop them especially in 2010 under the obama administration when they took it very hands-off attitude basically saying we are not going to get involved in the outcome of the iraqi political debate. all we care about is having free and fair elections. to my mind, that is a mistake and it's proven to be a mistake in practice, because it's allowed a essentially the elements to seize power in iraq. but it's a mistake that wasn't made by our forebears in the days of the cold war. in the early days of the cold war the truman administration and eisenhower administration didn't take the attitude we don't care of communists come to power in france or italy or japan as long as the host the elections that's all they care about. that was in their attitude and they were willing to do things such as pouring american funds into the political campaigns which on some level may be seen as prejudicial to the interest of free and fair elections which they understood correctly to actually be in the long run interest of preserving democracy in those countries. as a

when they reelected obama. they are still trying to fight for what they want themselves. i wonder what this country's going to come to in the next election. i am worried about the democrat and republican party. we do not know what the changes would be. another thing is the billions of dollars they are spending overseas trying to fight the war over there. they are financing billions, i believe to understood, it is that expensive. lives are being lost. i know it sounds reasonable to some people. you take people that do not care to die, like a lot of those suicide bombers, you cannot get rid of all of the terrorists. they are a country that is mixed up. i am concerned for the world. poor people do not seem to get a chance. the wealthy need another million when we need another dollar. host: times in arkansas. a reporter with politico -- john in kansas, republican. caller: hi, my comment is, i hope they pass the proposal so they can pass a sensible bill that addresses our national debt, and other legitimate concerns. and, we as citizens of america, and need to be responsible and we need to

they need to step up and make a compromise. with obama it's like a mandate, with the taxing the wealthiest americans, if he's elected which by a landslide, maybe they need to catch up and form and modernize the party. >> reporter: how much does the political posturing, how is that to watch this churn day after day for the past several days? >> it's rough. i was watching yesterday when the president spoke, hoping maybe they had come to some point. hearing him say we're close but not there yet, it's like these are things that directly affect americans and if this is your job, this in is why we elect you, it's waiting each day, it's kind of like -- it's cliff, though cliff is a misleading term it is a good term. it's like jumping over, waiting for something to kind of hit us, that really shouldn't be there at all. >> reporter: thanks for your thoughts. one other person i talked with had one more thought saying it's a shame na the u.s. economy is being held hostage by the u.s. congress. something to think about as we continue our new year's day. >> it was fascinating to hear that yo

list. richard, start with you, president obama, john boehner, winner or loser? >> i think both of them are winners for different reasons. the president won. obviously showed winning an election and staying on message is a winning strategy. he got republicans to budge on this decades long notion somehow or other lifting tax rates was going to be ruin news for the economy. i think we'll see that it's not. he got a lot of other provisions clean energy, tuition credits, senator for low income people. unemployment benefits extended that were on the line. i think john boehner is actually a winner too and here's why. he was not forced at end of the day to make his members walk the plank because the vote is in 2013. and not 2012. the, you know, the grow very norquist pledge could be observed. having their members vote to reduce rates. you heard senator mcconnell talk about for 98% of the people. that was something frankly not crystal clear even as a week ago whether boehner could make that stick. so i think he gets a good outcome here and kind of keeps his people in line. heather: we have to s

what happened with the election. but what else is going to be happening? >> first of all, boehner and mr. obama were not the right two to be negotiating because the scorpio and the lion exactly 90 degrees apart is a square. >> they shouldn't get married? >> i think it was good they brought in some other players. >> not a political marriage? >> because they communicate better, different people. i think that was good. mrs. clinton, a scorpio is at a low ebb with their help. i have been writing that. we're all going to say prayers for her. she's w hard. she can come through it and she's in the best hand. >> let's do genericically relationships. >> we've all been texting too much. now neptune moved into pisces and we're going to want to see each other more. touchy feely. last time neptune was in pisces was 169 years ago. >> we're all going to be mushy and public displays of affection? >> we won't go extreme but it sounds like you don't like that because you're a libra. but seeing each other more is a good thing. >> texting does tend to -- i like it better than talking. >> texting is good

the silent one, the campaign geeks have taken over politics, election analytics are really so important to why barack obama won, you know that hidden group of guys they hired and women that spent a year behind their laptops at campaign headquarters in chicago made the difference showing where to pull out the vote, huge different for the president. >> anna? >> i agree with hillary and told my republican counterparts we need more geeks. we need less nerds and more geeks. less pocket protectors and more piercings and facial hair. i think for me one of the biggest newsmakers was mulalah yousef who was shot by the taliban and recovering. she shows perseverance, gives me hope as a woman. she's an example of young girls all over the world and the most inspirational story and this entire year is this young girl not to frayed to talk, to raise her voice on behalf of freedom for other women and stand up for her rights and fight for her life. >> where do you stand on honey boo boo? >> i love honey boo boo. i am confess i am in the anderson cooper fan of honey boo boo clan. it makes fun o
